New C-Channels

My team recently got our shipment of aluminum C-channels. We noticed quite a lot of differences in looks and quality between these new C-channels and the older ones. Is there a reason for this?

We apologize for the delay in answering your question.

We have several different suppliers for the VEX metal components. Several in the US, several overseas. The majority of VEX aluminum comes from one supplier which includes a specific finish and coating. In some cases, when we run into supply issues we will switch to a secondary supplier for short-periods of time to meet demand. During these times, the finish will appear different, but the aluminum itself is the same grade and quality.

We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of this, please reach out to our support team so we can address any concerns you might have.
